I have been working at Autodesk

Pros

I've worked for Autodesk for almost seven years. I worked for four other employers previously; non-profit, for-profit, Fortune 50, high-tech, no-tech, ect. This is the best of them all and I'm not thinking about leaving. Autodesk has the benefits of an established company in a fast-paced and innovative industry. It is truly a global company with equal amounts of revenue coming from AMER, EMEA and APAC. It is a good company; kind to the environment, fair to employees and contributes positively to the communities where it is located. Carl Bass, the CEO, socializes with employees, especially on a field, track or court.

Cons

Often long and odd hours; calls at 10:00 pm and 6:00 am. People get in here and stay, so you really have to impress to get ahead. Poor performers are not always dealt with so you have to work around them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a new way to manage the street. US employees need more vacation time.

    I have been working at Autodesk

    Pros

    Decent work life balance most of the time
    Good benefits plus 6 week sabbatical for U.S. employees every 4 years
    Really like the new consumer products area Autodesk is getting into
    Casual work environment

    Cons

    Too many meetings about nothing
    Pay is mainly in the mid-range, although senior management is paid very well
    Individual contributors are not well compensated - you need to be a manager to have a decent salary
    Most mid-level managers manage their teams poorly - they need more training
    Non-revenue generating departments are extremely tight with their budgets and stretch their employees
    Annual employee survey doesn't show much results
    Carl Bass doesn't have company wide meetings
